ACTION: LEARN ABOUT JAPANESE INTERNMENT CAMPS FROM ARTIST LUMINARIES
“You can’t be citing Japanese internment camps as precedent for anything the president-elect is going to do,” Fox News.
“Look, the president needs to protect America first,” Carl Higbie, Trump surrogate.
In 2016, Trump campaigners asserted that the mass internment of Japanese Americans during World War II was a precedent for the proposed ban and registry for immigrants from Muslim countries. Not My Precedent is a reading and conversation about the acute realities, complexities, and ramifications of Japanese Internment Camps. Featuring National Book Award finalist Karen Tei Yamashita, Guggenheim fellow and playwright Philip Kan Gotanda, and AAWAA co-founder and artist Betty Kano. Moderated by Vivian Fumiko Chin, Chair, Ethnic Studies Dept at Mills College.
This panel is presented by 100 Days Action and Resistance Training, an exhibition curated by Glen Helfland at Slide Space 123.
